And I don’t feel guilty at all.

Except about the thousands of cookie-based calories I consumed yesterday, but that is a different sort of guilt.

And really? Nobody’s life is ending because I’m not listening to myself talk, so there’s no reason!

I have been busy with Christmas knitting, or more specifically, a re-obsession with Star Wars and, even more specifically, Han Solo, and all that this has to do with knitting is that I have been knitting while I watch the Star Wars trilogy (we shall not speak of episodes 1-3, which are inferior in all ways), over and over again.

This has yielded something quite spectacular, though. I have gotten through much of a sock in what is record time for me. It’s a quarter of the way done already! And I only started it last weekend! While slow for other knitters, this is quite quick for me, and gives me hope of finishing the first sock project ever sometime before the fifth and sixth sock projects ever (the first project ever is my first pair of socks, which are still uncompleted some 2 years after I started them).

I still have not finished any sweater-level projects. I imagine those won’t be nearly so quick.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
